African American History and Culture Workshop Series
Barry University, in partnership with the City of Hollywood's African American Advisory Council, hosted an African American History and Culture Workshop Series in 2015. The workshops covered a wide variety of topics and proved to be an interactive, educational experience that included noted lecturers, informative film clips, story-telling and role-play activities. The series launched on February, 2015 and continued through the month of April. The videos are available for viewing on the City's YouTube Channel.
